Yesterday in Paris was the Online expo at the Porte de Versailles that I visited on behalf of my company but was glad to be there just to meet people working in (on?) the web in general. I participated in a round table discussion about e-reputation and social networks that will be online later, but before I went I was looking at videos Wednesday night for some of the latest happenings and came upon this video interviewing the founder of Klout:
Probably not since it only has 62 views, but I found it interesting because one of the things he mentions is that they used Guy Kawasaki as the reference point of influence on Klout.
So if you’re active online, he might be influential (Mark Schaefer wrote a post about this yesterday you might want to check out), but what about if you’re NOT online?
Most people I know probably have no clue who he is.
It’s always interesting to see what’s “influential” online and offline
Maybe one day down the road guys like Guy will be our next president
The more friends you have on Facebook the better your chance of getting a job
The more connections you have on a network that doesn’t exist yet is how you’ll be promoted
And you’ll surely meet your future friends on Twitter
The web-o-world wouldn’t have it any other way, I’m sure 😉
What do you think?
Thanks for sharing this clip. I hadn’t heard of klout before and can see how this can be used a bunch of our clients immediately! Great stuff thought I’m not thrilled with my current score (21). I will have to work on that but also sign up so i can dig a little deeper into the metrics. Thanks again.
Hey Ryan, actually your Klout score is integrated in a number of Twitter third-party apps, as well
